In 1986, PWA was formed by a small group of people living with AIDS in response to what they were seeing and experiencing in the community. This was a community collective of resources to meet the needs of people living with HIV/AIDS.
That community collective continues today with the generous support from individuals, corporations, foundations, various levels of government, and events.
By choosing to support PWA, you are making a positive difference and an investment in ensuring people living with HIV/AIDS have access to food, financial assistance, therapies, training, and more.

The Shoppers Optimum Points™ Donation Program is a unique way to support PWA. By donating some (or all) of your Shoppers Optimum Points™ to PWA, you are providing us with points we can use at Shoppers Drug Mart® to purchase products and supplies for our Essentials Market (like feminine hygiene products, personal care products, or nutrient supplements) or to enhance other fundraising activities. To donate your Shoppers Optimum Points™, please visit: www.shoppersdrugmart.ca/donate
PWA accepts non-perishable food items for our Essentials Market Food Bank all year long. Consider asking guests to bring non-perishable food items to your next dinner soiree, birthday party or community event. It’s a great way to celebrate while still giving back. Donations can be dropped off at our office or for larger contributions we can coordinate picking up the items.
Our Philanthropy Department is here to help you make a positive difference. If you have any questions regarding your donation or supporting PWA please contact: Mike Twamley, Director of Philanthropy & Communications
